Folksy is a super friendly site with lots of helpful advice here on the forums. If you read some of the posts you will see that what you are advised to do, if you want to be a successful seller here, is Promote promote promote.
As the "UK NO.1 Provider of scrabble frames!” I am sure you must have sold hundreds of your Scrabble pictures already of E***. If you want to continue that success here on Folksy you need to ensure that you advertise your wares and don’t rely on Folksy to do it for you. That is not what Folksy does…
Little things such as having links on your Facebook page to your shops - here and on E** help enormously. I didn’t find it easy finding your E** shop from your Facebook page and I see no mention of your Folksy shop.
If you want people to find your shop on here you need to let the world out there know it is here.
Is this site any good. Well I’ve been here since 2009 and it’s very good for me but I put in my own effort at promotion to ensure that.|
Is it worth upgrading. Now that’s a mathematical question. For me yes as I sell a lot and list a lot so the average listing price for me works out far cheaper than individually. If you don’t promote / don’t sell much then it will not be cost effective.
PS: Interested in how you prove your No. 1 claim ?
PPS Good luck with your new shop here
